Through this health news article, researchers investigated the link between midnight snacking and tooth loss. Researchers found that individuals who tend to snack more after dinner face more weight gain along with an increase in tooth decay and loss.
Researchers predict that because we do not have as much saliva at night, we cannot remove food debris as easily after late night snacking. This in-turn leads to a greater chance for cavities to begin to form at night.
